Arts Award

Sandwell Cultural Education Partnership (SCEP) supports the development of arts award across Sandwell. Arts Award is a range of unique qualifications that inspire children and young people from 5 up to 25 to get involved in art in all its forms from dance, drama and music to fine art, sculpture and digital art. It develops creative, rounded learners who can use their skills across the curriculum and take these skills into the wider world.

For more information please contact Becky (Arts Award Manager) at, 0121 446 3204 or visit

Arts Award helps those responsible for teaching and learning to structure and manage experiences that fit in with children and young people’s maturing perceptions of society and their aspirations for their role within it.

Sandwell Cultural Education Partnership (SCEP) supports the development of Artsmark across Sandwell. Artsmark recognises schools and other settings that are making the arts come alive and it is a valuable tool for enriching arts provision, whatever the starting point of your school or setting.

The Artsmark programme has an application process that is light on paperwork and flexible to each setting. It provides access to networks of arts and cultural organisations who can work with you to inspire and motivate young people and staff.

Artsmark is open to all primary, secondary, independent and special schools in England, sixth form colleges, pupil referral units and Youth Offending Services.

For more information please contact Helen (Senior Programme Manager:Artsmark Manager) at, 0121 446 3204 or visit

Our Artsmark journey has been crucial in helping shape our thinking, give us new ideas and a sense of purpose. Our regional Bridge organisation has been very supportive in encouraging strategic support and making links with local partners.
